goldenlangur

always singing

these bulbuls in the field

in rain and in sun

if they could speak

would they tell me their secret?

Seems they are communicating, GL ... just not with us, and we don't know what they're saying. icon_smile.gif I, too, have wondered ...

 

I'm not a morning person, and just the other day, I was up and wandering around a little earlier than usual. All I could hear through the window, in the otherwise silent morning, was the caw of an unknown bird. It came at regular intervals. What was the avian saying? Was its call just an involuntary act? Perhaps it was a mating call. icon_redface.gif I dunno, but I'd like to know!

Wonderful and very poetical words Goldenlangur. Nice wondering and I see Tony has wondered too. I think that they can answer you many things, just listen carefully. Their song is very vivid, but melancholic too. Definitely we can communicate with the birds. We can cry or smile with them.

 

GL thank you so much for sharing this lovely poem with us. This one gave me wonderful imagery.

Golden,

 

I love the last two lines. The author sounds so close to and is mesmerized himself in the nature.

 

A soothing read.

i agree with aleks. we can laugh and cry with nature. that is what they sense from us is fear or easiness.

Thank you Tony, Aleksandra, Lake and vic for taking a look at this piece and posting your thoughts.

 

You are quite right - nature has a cycle and rhythm with which sometimes one feels out of sync. But its charm and beauty remain, even as we go through swings in moods and experiences, ourselves.

 

 

Much appreciation,

Hi Mike,

 

Long time no see or read your work. I hope you have been writing when you can spare time. I miss your prose poems.

 

The bulbul is a song bird in these parts. I'm not sure what the English/European equivalent would be - the nightingale?Needless to say it is the male that has the beautiful voice icon_wink.gif

 

 

Thank you for the read and you lovely comment. Look forward to reading your work icon_smile.gif
